25 Nov Top 5 Stubborn Carpet Stains
Red Wine Stains
One of the most dreaded stains and possibly one of the worst to have on your carpet! As soon as the red wine is spilt, try blotting as much as you can out of the carpet with a paper towel. A common mistake people make is scrubbing as hard as possible but this can make the problem worse. Taking time is the key for red wine stains.
The most common in homes and offices, the accidental coffee spill. As it is highly acidic, coffee can often cause awful yellow and brown stains that can be very tricky to remove. A trick is to make a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar, then try blotting it directly onto the stain. Follow this by sponging with cold water before blotting dry.
Often caused by ballpoint pens, carpets in home or office environments are subject to ink staining. There are various DIY methods for ink stain removal, one of which is to use rubbing alcohol to clean the area. Using a clean cloth, wet a corner with rubbing alcohol and gently dab the stain. Start around the circumference of the stain and work your way to the centre in order to prevent smudging, spreading or ruining your hard work.
If you’ve accidentally spilt a chocolate drink, it’s best to act quickly and immediately blot out as much liquid as possible. Once that is done, use a touch of dishwashing detergent and gently dab at the area until the stain is removed. Finish by sponging with clean water and patting dry with a clean cloth.
Pet owners, in particular, are all too familiar with this pesky stain! We recommend cleaning it as soon as it happens, to avoid seeping into the carpet. Read more tips on keeping your carpet clean with pets.
